Wood Valley is the product of a gigantic mudslide in 1868, which left an impressive cliff at the back of the valley that is festooned with waterfalls during rainy periods. Wood Valley farm is 84.6 acres and the campsite is located within a 50 acre organic pasture.
The beautiful Nechung Tibetan Buddhist Temple is within walking distance of the farm, where you can see incredible Buddhist art or join a practice.
Wood Valley Farm is a conscious, organic permaculture farm based on community values. Founded by Malian Lahey in 2011, it is the birthplace of a new state of the art coffee production in Ka`u.
Ka`u itself is famous for its coffee and there are myriad coffee stands where you can sample the local bean and connect with a coffee farmer. In Pahala you can pick up dental floss, snacks or other basics at Mizuno store while in Naalehu you can choose pizza at Shaka's, chicken katsu at Hana Hou or cold sandwiches at Punalu`u Bakery.
There are waterfalls, hiking trails, green and black sand beaches, and epic stretches of coastline to be enjoyed. Most epic of all the local attractions: open ocean snorkeling in "The Ditch"; a deepwater cove at Whittington Beach Park where eagle rays and sea turtles swim between coral pillars and shipwrecks.
